Yummy Egg Bake
I was needing something to make for our Thursday Morning Coffee last week. So I went searching through some of my favorite blogs and found this Egg Bake from Finding Joy in My Kitchen. She has many yummy looking recipes. I did change her recipe up a bit based on what I had and added more egg. Not much though. Here is what I did.
5 C hash browns, thawed
1 bag of 3 pepper and onion blend, thawed (frozen section)
8oz of mushrooms, sauteed
1 1/2 C extra sharp cheddar cheese
2/3 C milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish (I used butter).
In a non stick skillet, saute mushrooms with a bit of butter. Remove from pan and set aside. Add a bit more butter/oil and saute the pepper/onion mixture.
In a large bowl, mix together potatoes, mushrooms, and pepper/onion mixture.
Layer half of the potato mixture into the dish.
Sprinkle with half of the cheese.
Then, spread the rest of the potato mixture over the top and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese.
Mix together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour over the potato mixture.
Bake at 375 for 40 minutes. Let the dish stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Everyone really seemed to enjoy it! I had a bit of a cold so I couldn't taste as well as I would have liked but from what I could tell it was delicious!
